Research Interests

 Radiation therapy to moving targets is major research interest. This topic includes to acquire tumor position in realtime and to deliver radiation to the moving organ . Dr. Yi has invented a novel idea to track a tumor during radiotherapy, called dose-rate-regulated therapy (DRRT) and also invented a method to generate tomographic image via backgorund subtraction (TIBS) which enables to acquire tomographic images during treatments.
